Summary: I am loving this camera. It's easy to use, compact and the picture quality is really good. If you want something with excellent quality, try a SRL, which I switch back to my SRL occationally, but this is just a great size.
Great pix, lots of features, but stuck with "memory schtick"

Summary: I've bought several of these little digital cameras over the last 15 years, and this little Sony holds it's own. Of course it has more pixels than the older cameras, however at around 8 mp other things like shutter speed and quality of optics are more important to image quality. For this reason I tend to prefer buying from experienced high-end camera makers over consumer electronics makers like Sony.
Summary: I needed a second still image camera for business since we share a single one in the office, which often results in delays. I was so happy with the Sony Cybershot DSCW80 that I bought about two or three years ago, that it was a no-brainer to upgrade to this newer, higher megapixel version. This is my fourth Sony digital camera, and I'm loving it. I can't stress enough how wonderful the anti-blur technology on the camera is.
Summary: We most recently purchased this camera after wanting to upgrade our pixels from our old Sony. Takes very nice photos, good video clips if needed but less then stellar when it comes to zoom clarity. At a graduation ceremony from the second row I tried to zoom halfway to get a better shot and found the end result both on the display and in the actual print out to be very blurry and that wasn't even in full zoom.
